Everyone has experienced some form of loss during this pandemic season, some on a professional level and others from a personal standpoint. This profound loss either makes or breaks a person, and rising Filipino music artist Randy Boo chooses to rise above losing a personal friend by releasing a remix of his single GFY featuring the late Chi Chi DeVayne from RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The hip and danceable single was released on YouTube on February 22, 2020, just before the world crisis took a surprising turn and became a pandemic. The single is also available on all streaming platforms. Its colorful, raw, and vibrant music video instantly caught the attention of music fans in the country, especially because Randy Boo featured Chi Chi DeVayne, a famous drag queen who was born Zavion Michael Davenport. The 34-year-old TV personality became widely known in the eighth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars.
Randy Boo was one of the many friends of Chi Chi DeVayne who was shocked by her untimely demise due to scleroderma, an autoimmune disease. Chi Chi was rushed to the hospital due to kidney failure, and she eventually succumbed to pneumonia. As a tribute to her colorful and well-lived life, Randy Boo produced the remix and edited the fun music video himself. This is his way of immortalizing Chi Chi DeVayne’s memory, a beautiful person well-loved by many.
At present, Randy Boo is motivated to further develop his singing, rapping, and songwriting skills, knowing that his music is reaching out to many people and giving them the encouragement and entertainment they need. For any artist who is just starting out in the industry, positive messages from fans are like a breath of fresh air that fuels their creativity and productivity. As he is boldly developing his unique personal brand, he hopes to become an example to those who also aspire to chase their dreams.
“When I started building my own brand, without knowing that I was inspiring others to do something for themselves as well, that kind of motivated me to keep pushing and continuing doing me to inspire others along the way,” Randy Boo explains.
Even if he is just starting out in his music career, the young and dynamic artist sees himself working with other big names in the industry in a few years. As he continues to build his network and work on new songs to share with the world, he looks forward to one day collaborating with the likes of Shawn Mendes, Bruno Mars, and The Queen B herself, Beyonce.
“I want them to see and realize that each and everyone one of us has the power to manifest the dreams and reality they wanna experience,” Randy Boo adds.
Just like all other up-and-coming music artists, Randy Boo is committed to producing exceptional music until he makes it in the industry. The journey may be an uphill experience, but he believes that he has the right groove, lyrical talent, and creativity to launch himself to stardom. By setting his eyes on accomplishing his ultimate dream to become a well-respected singer in the future, Randy Boo is bound for greatness.
